I have been poking through the codex, forums and plugins for days; please forgive me if this is answered somewhere as I can't find it.
I have WordPress installed in its own /wordpress directory with a number of static pages as well as posts. I use templates including index.php, home.php and page.php.
I would like all the static pages, including Home, to *appear* to be in the root. I would like the posts, including the blog index, to continue to appear to be in a subfolder. So I want Home to function as the *site* home, and index to function as the *blog* home (showing the most recent posts).
So for example the URLs the visitor would see would be:
Just to be clear, I do want the static pages to continue to call the header, sidebar and footer, just to appear to the visitor to be in root.
Not to be too demanding :-) but it would help a lot if the process of showing people the wordpress home.php as the *site* root was SEO friendly.
